The Sixteen South Award for Excellent Achievement

Updated: Jun 15

Our BDes Animation student Jacob Matthess has been awarded the The Sixteen South Award for Excellent Achievement . Jacob has a passion for storytelling through animated performance. Working in the animation industry, he has had experience with both 2d and 3d animation, storyboarding, and character design. He is fascinated by hand drawn animation and decided to create a fully hand drawn animated short for my university project.

This project was inspired by a drawing of a character his grandfather created called “Mr Pineapple”. Jacob thought it would be great to bring his drawings to life in this short, as we follow the story of a baby that learns not to be selfish, but rather to value friendship.
